Bhushan Kumar of T-Series has said that 'Adipurush' is being made on a budget of Rs 500 Cr. That makes it costlier than 'Roudram Ranam Rudhiram'.
Speaking to a portal, Kumar floated the number. This is the first time that the makers of the Prabhas-starrer have given a specific number. Hitherto, the media has been making speculations without official confirmation.
The 5-billion figure is likely an inflated figure for the purposes of publicity. Whatever may be the budget of the Om Raut directorial, the audience have to gear up to spend extraordinary amounts on buying the ticket.
The producers of 'Adipurush' are going for the kill despite Prabhas delivering a flop in the form of 'Radhe Shyam'. They know that an epic mythological action movie will definitely attract the masses.
The film hits the cinemas on January 12 next year.
